|In this talk, 'Burgle Bros' creator Tim Fowers goes in-depth into his acclaimed co-operative board game. It was designed to capture the fantasy of the heist: allowing players to experience the tension of planning, pushing your luck, and adapting when things go south. Fowers will talk about how to recreate these moments using key game choices instead of theatrical presentation. He will discuss how games are ultimately a test of character and how he used rogue-like mechanics to drive players to critical choices that create emotion and tell unique emergent stories.
